Once again, Evanovich has written a laugh-out-loud book about the antics of bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and her side kick, Lula.  This time Lula is eye witness to a beheading and the murderers are after her.  Throw in a BBQ contest and Grandma and Lula teaming up as contestants cum  sleuths and you have one of Evanovich’s best Plum books yet.  A great book to kick off your summer reading.

Two for the Dough
Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter,is assisted by a cast of “characters”: Lula, a former ho; Ranger, a hunky master bounty hunter; and Joe Morelli, a cop-come-boyfriend.  Stephanie’s family of Mom, Dad, and Grandma Mazur, as zany a grandma as you’ll ever meet, serve as counterpoint to Stephanie’s risky, chaotic life.  While the crime plots are thin, the laughs are a line a minute!!! The first Stephanie Plum book is set to be filmed in September, with Kathleen Hegyl playing Stephanie.  The books in this series stand alone and can be read out of order.

Golden Reads reviews

From Elaine Pasquali:

Beachcomber, by Karen Robards

This book was packed with suspense and sexual tension and a cat named Marvin provided some delightful comic relief.  The north eastern beach setting made it easy to visualize surroundings.  An unexpected twist at the end took me completly by surprise. 

Hard Eight, by Janet Evanovich

I love this author.  Her character development is full enough to be able to get a real “feel” for Stephanie Plum, her family and friends.  As a bounty hunter, Stephanie is an accident waiting to happen.  Each character is quirky in a funny way.  The scrapes Stephanie gets into are unimaginable to  a rationale mind, but Stephanie operates on instinct rather than rationality.  The book is laugh-out-loud funny and I am continuously laughing out loud.  Give it a try if you’re looking for light hearted reading.
